Code to the Future:
In Virginia and across the nation, employers struggle to fill computer programming jobs. Meanwhile, our nation and world face substantial problems relating to topics such as economic growth, health, education, and the environment. One of the many challenges relating to successfully addressing these problems is the scarcity of individuals with strong computer programming skills and knowledge.
Round Hill Elementary is one of three Loudoun County Public Schools that was selected to represent our school division in a new initiative.
Starting in grade three, students will participate in blindfolded chess to develop visual-spatial abilities that would contribute to their success as programmers.
We are very excited about the 2017-18 academic year and are honored to be one of the first computer immersion schools in Loudoun County and in the state of Virginia. Our theme this year will be “UNLOCKING the CODE to the FUTURE”. We will be joining with ‘Code to the Future’ in this exciting work!
